God’s Power

We have many jagger plants near my home. They are thistles that have jagged leaves and purple flowers on top. I think these plants are like people.
All people experience physical pain or emotional pain in their lives. We alone cannot bring good out of our pain. But if we allow God to take care of us, He can make good things happen in our lives.
The jagger flower has to grow up through all those prickly leaves before it can become a beautiful blossom at the top of the plant. In the same way, we must face difficulties in life. But with God’s power, good things can happen because of those hard times. Verse 20 of our Bible Reading says, “With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of.” God can bring beauty from ugliness, hope from despair, peace from confusion, and life from death. Allow Him to work through your life today. God’s power can make wonderful things happen.
